Your smartphone knows what size you are. Well, it does if you use MySizeID body measurement technology from My Size, Inc. that was shown at CES 2018.
Unlike, traditional methods for determining accurate body measurements that range from low tech, the use of a measuring tape to high tech, such as advanced 3D scanners, approaches can be complicated, expensive and /or may require a high level of expertise and operating skills, the MySizeID body measurement uses company-developed anthromorphic databases, with personal information that the user inputs into the smartphone to estimate the circumference of body parts used to derive clothing sizes. With accurate size information, the user will be able to purchase clothing online and get the right fit.
The three-step process consists of:
- Taking simple body measurements using the smartphone;
- Estimating the required measurements based on the retailer’s size chart, using My Size’s algorithms; and
- Suggesting the correct size to the consumer, based on the retailer’s size chart.
Late last year, the company announced that it improved its measurement algorithm to an accuracy level of 1 cm – a capability that will be integrated into the next version of the Company’s application. The improvement applies mainly to small areas objects which are under 50 cm in size. They expect measurement accuracy of ±1 cm instead of the current ±2 cm. For larger surfaces ranging from 50 to 200 cm, they expect the measurement accuracy will be ±2 cm. For surfaces which are greater than 200 cm, the measurement accuracy will be ±2 %.
